Thanks

Hello, my crafty friends!  It makes my heart so happy that you still find some time to be creative and do the things you love with how busy your schedule is. I am blessed once again to have the opportunity to share some fun and wonderful projects with you today.  Sit back and enjoy the inspiration!

Living The Life By Amanda Baldwin

Have you ever tried adding textiles to your layouts?  They are a fabulous medium to use on projects and can include items such as lace, ribbon, pom poms, tulle, fabric squares, cotton/thread, sewing, weaving, buttons, and bows. And I am sure there are many more!  It really gives your layout some dimension and texture, not to mention what a fun and different look you’ll be able to achieve.  Never be afraid to add something different on your layout.  You will be so surprised how many fun ways you can use sewing items in your creating!

Living The Life

This layout was created using milliner’s lace, baker’s twine, pom pom trim, buttons, and ribbon as elements.  Amanda also used the Maggie Holmes Chasing Dreams collection. Adding some memorabilia can also be fun to remind you of cherished memories.  I am sure you would love to see more of Amanda’s wonderful projects so let me escort you on over to Paper Issues.  Amanda always has something fun and creative to share.

Thanks By Debby Hughes

Are you ready for another great color combo?  Debby picked such great colors and she never fails to amaze me with her beautiful coloring skills.  Debby used Prismacolor pencils since they are wonderful for a soft blending of color.  She accented a few areas with white gel pen and glitter pens, then cut the piece with a basic square die.  This is such a stunning card!  Don’t you just love the elegance of this card?

Thanks

This is one of those cards that make you want to jump right in and create one of your own.  Are you ready to begin?  Let me escort you over to the Lime Doodles Design blog where Debby will give you a full list of supplies used along with directions on how she created her beautiful card.  You will be over-the-top inspired by Debby, and you won’t want to miss out on any of her fabulous projects.

Indigo Skies Frame By Alicia McNamara

Here is a great DIY project!  Create a wonderful picture frame to display on a tabletop in your home.  If you are like me, I always love having pictures of my family sitting out.  What a great way to display them, and with a frame you have created that will get tons of compliments, too!  Alicia created this three-piece panel frame using the beautiful Indigo Skies Collection by Kaiser Kraft. This collection is so versatile that it can be used for boys or girls.

Indigo Skies Frame

Alicia has created a video showing the different techniques she used to make her frame.  She added some Abstract Triangles to add some texture to the frame, along with some background stamping.  She also fussy-cut some of the beautiful butterflies to decorate the frame.

Vellum Overlay Cards

Do you have spring fever?  I know I sure do!  After the winter most of us had, I am sure you are ready for some beautiful spring-themed projects.  With spring on it’s way, it is also a reminder that Easter is just around the corner.  When I think about spring or Easter, pretty pastel colors and flowers come to mind.  So with that said, I would like to share some fun projects using flowers.  I hope today you will be inspired with these fun spring projects.

Best Days Of Our Lives By Alicia McNamara

We all know how much texture and dimension adds to a layout, card, or mixed media project. Alicia has definitely demonstrated this in this layout. We often use the term “Happy Papercrafting” because we know the opportunities with paper are so much more than just on the page.  Today, Alicia shares her gorgeous example of beautiful altered art. I would also like to share a tip that will help you when creating your outstanding layouts.  TIP: Choose a focal point on your layout and then create embellishments that will continue to tell the story from that point.  It is amazing how well this works!

Best Days Of Our Lives

Alicia’s layout is full of all kinds of beautiful elements.  It is really light and colored with some pastels, but there are also some black parts here and there to give it a nice contrast.  I absolutely love that!  Alicia adds wording perfectly and it tells so much about the photo.  This layout is certainly an eye catcher and is very well done.  Let me take you over to Time to Create where you can write down all of the products you will need to start your own layout.  Take some time while you are at Alicia’s blog to see more of her beautiful creations.  You will certainly leave her blog feeling very inspired.

Vellum Overlay Cards By Jennifer McGuire

Not sure how to use vellum?   Do you ever struggle using vellum?  Here’s a fun technique using vellum that will turn your curiosity (or struggles) into having fun and being very creative.  You will enjoy working with vellum so much that I guarantee you will make many more projects using it. These beautiful cards created by Jennifer McGuire have a vellum overlay that give each one a very soft look.

Vellum Overlay Cards

Jennifer started her cards by simply using white embossing powder to emboss the floral image on vellum.  There is a little bit of glitter added to the lines of the flower for extra interest and a pearl added to the center. Adding some color to her image, she started by stamping the layering floral image with the Altenew Beautiful Day Stamp Set using different shades of Altenew ink on a small note card.  Let me escort you over to watch Jennifer’s YouTube Video on how she created her card, along with her step-by-step instructions.  You are going to love every minute of her video.  Step out of your comfort zone and take some time to experiment and just have fun creating!

Absolutely Beautiful By Melissa Phillips

Cards might be little, but they are packed with so much inspiration.  This is one of those cards that can be so versatile.  Send it as a Spring, Hello, Birthday, Thinking Of You, or even an Easter Card.  Who wouldn’t love to receive this adorable card in the mail?

Absolutely Beautiful

Melissa’s card started with the word beautiful to create the theme for her card.  She used the Reverse Confetti You’re So stamp set for her sentiment.  The beauty of this stamp set is it has four uplifting words that can be mixed and matched to create numerous uplifting sentiments.  She also used the Blooms ‘N Buds stamp set to create the pretty blossoms.  For the background, Melissa used the XOXO Hearts Confetti Cuts.  Melissa’s creativity is amazing!  I love her combinations and the colors she chose are so pretty and perfect!  Click here and I will take you over to see more of Melissa’s wonderful talent and fabulous creations.

Luscious Lemon Cake By Christi Johnstone

Lemon desserts always make me think of spring, so I wanted to take a moment to share this Luscious Lemon Cake with you.  This cheery lemon cake is perfect for Easter or any festive occasions.  Lemon is one of my absolute favorites and this Luscious Lemon Cake is both easy and delicious.  You won’t want just one bite!

Luscious Lemon Cake

This lemon cake is probably one of the best I have ever made.  Being that lemon is one of my favorite flavors; I have been making lemon cakes for many years.  My children said that this has to be a new tradition in the family and I am to bring this cake now whenever we have get togethers.  Let me take you on over to Love From the Oven where Christi Johnstone will share her recipe with you.  Be sure and grab your pen and paper, because this is one recipe you will want to make to share with your family and friends!

Thank you for sharing a bit of your Saturday with me.  I hope you have been inspired today to try something new.  I am looking forward to seeing you back next week.  Have a great weekend!

Hugs,

LeAnn

As many of you know, I am a big fan of anything that is done with watercoloring techniques.  You can never go wrong trying out several types of watercoloring.  The best yet is that your project will always look beautiful and there will never be a mistake when creating it.  Each individual piece will have it’s own personality and charm.  This particular background was watercolored and then stamped with the Alphabet Soup stamp set.

Saturdays-with-LeAnn

Welcome back to another wonderful Saturday here on our Weekly Scrapper blog!  I have some very fun treasures to share with you today.  I hope that they will inspire you to jump out of your comfort zone and create something uniquely you!

Who says you have to put photos only into layouts?  Mini albums are a fabulous way of using your precious photos. They are not only fun to create, but are also a perfect gift, and bring a smile to anyone’s face by sharing memories that have so much love and meaning.  Mini albums are not only a perfect gift but they also don’t take much time to create.  What enjoyment for both you and the one receiving the album!

Blessed To Call You Friend By Amy Kolling

Nothing says spring better then a bouquet of flowers!  This adorable card will certainly brighten anyone’s day.  Here is another fun card to try, so break out your stamps and dies!

Blessings To Call You Friend

To get a very crisp black image, use Versafine Onyx Black ink to stamp your wildflowers, clear embossing powder, and then heat set.  Embossing is a great way to watercolor as the embossing keeps your ink inside the lines.  Amy used vellum for her background along with the die-cut Leafy Vine Cutting Plate with thick vellum.  The vellum gives the card an opaque look.  When added to a light grey note-card, it looks like faux embossing.  For more inspiration from Amy, come with me over to her blog Stamp-N-Paradise.

Rosette Mirror By Christy James

Do you have an old mirror hanging around that you just don’t want to part with?  Today I am going to share a way of turning that old mirror into something different and charming.

Rosette Mirror

First of all, adding some dimension really gives the mirror a pop, and the appealing rosettes finish off the mirror in an attractive way.  Giving the mirror a new paint job and adding a few rosettes gives this a sweet, new look.  It isn’t expensive to create and the rosettes are so fun to make.  Click here for a full tutorial on making your rosettes, and then be sure to visit Confessions of a Serial Do-It-Yourselfer for more makeovers for your home.

Peanut Marshmallow Bars By Maryanne
